1.2. Research Background & Goal
While pervasive technologies and self-reporting devices emerges, the need for design requirements for Situated-Self Reporting (SSR) device increases.
This research targets to suggest design requirements of SSR device by qualitatively exploring the usability of the HEED device throughout two research phases :
Phase 1: Participatory User Test with the HEED Device& the Phone Application
Phase 2: Qualitative Usability Exploration with HEED User
1.3. My Contribution
Specially recruited for research Phase 2 (Qualitative exploration)
Sep 15th - Current (accompanied Chuyao Wang, MSI 1st)
Analyzed 18 interview transcripts with recordings
Open-coding & Thematic Analysis & Phenomenological and Ethnographic Strategy
Iteratively validated and reduced data
Built up a whole structure of participants' experience
Wrote-up a method part of the final
(See "Method" and "Findings" for details)
